The end cannot justify the means

Unfortunately, certain types of strategic outreach assume that the means don’t matter if the end result is good. But the means and ends are profoundly intertwined. If we want people to experience the kingdom of God and to dwell with God in eternity, then how they experience their relationship with us should be a foretaste of that goodness and beauty

The strategy has to reflect the goal. The goal is not to just something to be gained, but a people we embody. As Christians, we have to find a way in where our means reflects the end, not by the end justifying the means. Everything we do should bear witness to the end. Hope is on the way and it is evidently seen through me right now, the present.

Is there anything in your life where the ends are justifying the means?
